This is a busy restaurant so a booking is probably best especially for sitting outside. A very good menu with good service. We wanted to try a few places during our three night stay but ate there twice. Superb steaks.

Dropped in on spec for an evening meal for two. Friendly welcome and service. Good menu choice and good wine list, but they just recommend the house: no thought in suggesting matches to the food! There is a good selection of local specialities and when the food arrives, the main part (pork, fish, beef etc) is really well cooked and... More

Ordered Pork and a beer. 40mins later fish turned up. No beer. Waitresses and in particular manager were useless and indolent. Manager bumped into pram containing our sleeping toddler. No apologies. Shoulder-shrugged off..... Dire.

Having had a long drive up from The Dordogne we were starving. Our hotel had booked this for us so we were looking forward to our dinner. We ordered starters, the filet de boeuf, and the chicken. We ate our starters and were then told there was no beef. Sadly though this was then served to 4 people on the... More

Overall it was an excellent experience. The waiter was a very nice man, who spoke good english and was an excellent waiter, the food was absolutely delicious. If only the decor was a bit better and a bit more original then it would have gotten top marks from me. I truly recommend this restaurant.

Recommend by our B&B hottest for dinner. The place was very popular with locals. We had one entree and two mains. The entree was good but mains were ok. My husband had a beef dish and it was rather tough. I had fish and chose not to have the citron sauce to avoid cream and it was a bit dry.... More

Of all the places we tried around this square without doubt this was our favourite. Any one who serves up a start of avocado, crab and roast red pepper ice cream, in a beautiful stack wins hands down in my book. Hundreds of wine to choose from too. An all round winner

Of the many choices in this part of Saumur, this bistrot is top end for food and service. The dishes of the day were all excellent in taste and presentation. Quantity and value is good and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed.

The restaurant inside is cute and the staff friendly, the food was ok, but not spectacular, one of my friends ordered vegetables with her fish and they forgot, they said sorry we forgot and now the kitchen is closed already.....I asked my steak medium and it came rare!

Description
Good food and good wine: here's what you get at the Bistrot de la Place! We serve fresh homemade food that you can choose off the "a la carte" menu or from our set menus. And if you're feeling peckish during the day, we also offer oysters, cured meat and cheese platters.
During spring and summer, our outside terrace will allow you to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of this small and cute square of Saumur.
